Palin on pathetic

To Esquire magazine, Sarah Palin said the following.
"Bored, anonymous, pathetic bloggers who lie annoy me....I'll tell you, yesterday the Anchorage Daily News, they called again to ask — double-, triple-, quadruple-check — who is Trig's real mom. And I said, Come on, are you kidding me? We're gonna answer this? Do you not believe me or my doctor? And they said, No, it's been quite cryptic the way that my son's birth has been discussed. And I thought, Okay, more indication of continued problems in the world of journalism."
I actually agree with the first line. I don't like bored. I don't like anonymous. I don't like lying. Bloggers who are those could be called pathetic with some justification. Good thing about blogs, though, is that you can just close the browser, and they're gone.

Palin's quote here is confusing, because she starts by patronizing bloggers, while the rest of the rant is really about journalists. I, too, would find it incredibly annoying if a newspaper called to ask me the same stupid question four times. However, she didn't get those four calls from bloggers, but from a journalist.

Yet another example of her ineptness?
